Robbie Renwick on the tragic death of Dale Oen


Nice blog post here on the Scottish Sun, by Olympic qualified Robbie Renwick, with an important message too:

The scary thing is there seems to have been a trend just lately for fit young athletes to have heart problems.

First Bolton’s Fabrice Muamba collapsed, then the Italian player, Piermario Morosini, dropped dead on the pitch. Now Dale Oen.

For me, something has to be done to check on a regular basis that hearts and everything else are working properly.

I haven’t had my heart screened at all. I feel 100 per cent healthy — but Dale Oen probably did too.
